Nicole's Breast Friends Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



We're going to get a LITTLE bit personal here... You all know that I'm planning on nursing this baby, WELL my milk has ALREADY come in. Actually I'm 27.5 weeks now and it came in right around 19 weeks. I could not believe it. 
I guess it's colostrum although it's milky colored and thinner then I remember colostrum to be, but it's definitely there. 

Since I was sleeping on my side I was leaking. It wasn't much, but enough I would have to change my bra in the morning. So I contacted Nicole at Nicole's Breast Friends and she was kind enough to send me 3 pairs of pads to review. 
I love the prints on these!!

They're so cute!!!
So they are a later of cotton, a layer of waterproof PUL, 2 layers of Bamboo cotton (which is antibacterial) and then Flannel  on the back. The flannel goes against your skin and the color faces out. I really like these. They have a generous size to them. 

I do have to tell a funny story though. 
I had them sitting on the coffee table, Jon comes out of the bedroom and says "What are these? Coasters?" I couldn't stop laughing!!! It was so funny that he thought they were coasters. But then I thought "I guess they could be, there is a waterproof layer in them" and then I told him they were nursing pads!! 

I guess they're cute enough for the breast and they're cute enough for your glass!! haha. 

Anyway, They are a generous size. I like that there is bamboo in them because bamboo is super absorbent. For now though, I've been wearing these at night only. Because I was a side sleeper and they would get squished so I would leak. This protected my bra from needing to be changed every morning. 

Now we got a new bed that goes to a Zero Gravity Position and it prevents you from side sleeping and keeps you on your back and it's been AMAZING. I've found that I don't leak at night anymore, so I've stopped using these for now. I know once baby comes though they will definitely be back in my daily regimen. 

She also makes Pouches for your Breast Pads, Pacifier clips, Wipes and Burp Cloths, Car Seat Protector Pads and more!

Price: 5 sets, so 10 pads is $24. This is generous!!!

Overall: *****
